When we set out to Jeep Poughkeepsie Gulch, we had a goal of camping as close as possible to Animas Forks. We were excited to find an already established campsite complete with a fire ring just below the ghost town.Gotta have smores!The moon was so bright!! Maralee didn't even think of asking for our solar powered night light.
This was the view of our campsite the next morning as we drove up Cinnamon Pass.
One more shot of our tent, at the bottom of the photo, and the Animas Forks ghost town above. The best camping experiences we have ever had have been for free!
UPDATE: I failed to mention that this is the Animas River we camped by, the same river that we rafted in Durango!! Not too far upstream from here is where the river begins.
